this on the eve of an election. again, i'm obviously not positing some huge conspiracy. in our environment, in our hyperpartisan environment, most people in a situation like this seeing any possibility for political advantage would have raced to expose something like this, right? general petraeus was confronted about this two weeks ago, right? two weeks before the election. chose -- ultimately decided to resign but didn't decide to resign at that moment. was there part of the reason he did not decide to resign immediately upon being confronted on this, he knew it would be embarrassing for the administration on the eve of an election? that's a reasonable inference. there's so much we don't know because so many people individually have not spoken publicly about the chain of events and their motivations in terms of keeping quiet at a moment of maximum political volatility. >> just to clarify because i've raised a lot of questions here, my biggest concern isn't what happened at the end. i understand there are a lot of conservatives that are going to be thinking that this was -- >> cover-up. >> benghaz
green, all things relating to the environment and our energy policy how optimistic are you that we're going to find a solution to this in the coming years, which is to say the next four? >> you know, in hearing the president speak and reading -- it's i guess confused as an observer and i love listening to you but trying to parse out what it means because what it goes back to for me, in the election, when politicians were separating ow the economy from birth control i was like, no, it's the same. when we hear, we have to see what's economically sound, and when we talk about climate change and energy, didn't i just hear, and don't we think the future is green jobs and what that means? so kind of stepping back, makes me feel frustrated because i feel like isn't that the direction we need to be going in and how do we convince americans that, yeah, you know what, prices at pump have to go up if we want to have them not? >> you can ask somebody who has lost a business in coney island or in the rockaways if this is about jobs and growth. >> right. >> there are people who are going to take
are living in a post-war environment. as to your dislike of violence, what is happening is the conflicts are becoming less violent and more symbolic. it is very true of this conflict. it is the internet that is becoming the battlefield, the tv camera. twitter is the battlefield. >> gaza -- >> these are real life. >> it's a real battlefield. i have spoken to my family. there was a siren in tel aviv over gaza. what i would like to see is an international involvement after the cease-fire is reached. i think we send the palestinians the opposite message of what you are saying because what happened. looking at wholistic approach, after the first, we were willing to go. after the second we give the disengagement. we pulled out. basically, the palestinians have only gotten something through violence. the only thing is that it had to be a greater violence than you can imagine to achieve something like that. the long term concept is in palestinian. i agree there is an international indifference to the conflict when it's not contained or managed. in israel, in this part, i agree with you, there is
it was such a politically charged environment dealing with benghazi and the cia, we didn't -- they didn't want to bring something to the president that was half-baked. i think they showed great restraint in really not getting caught up in the politico hoopla that was months ago. they did it the right way by not politicizing this thing. >> petraeus was scheduled to testify this thursday in these congressional senate hearings that have been established to find out more information about benghazi. a lot of which he has been front and center of trying to pull together information on on the point person on this. senator lindsey graham made an important statement -- >> we have four dead americans in benghazi. we have a national secure failure along in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. so from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. >> his second is going to step in to give that testimony now. but could he be co

resignation? maybe there would be in the current environment. i can't tell anymore what the standards are sometimes. >> well, you know, i don't know. >> i mean it. >> i doubt that. i think you're probably right. and certainly it doesn't apply to members of congress, but they're elected officials and these are appointed officials. the fbi basically says we decided to tell the dni, the director of national intelligence, james clapper, when we were all done what happened here because we thought he should know as, in essence, a personnel matter. under the new system the director of the cia reports to clapper. clapper is his boss, and they thought that clapper should know. he controls the security clearances. let him make the decision about whether it was proper to keep david petraeus on the job. obviously clapper felt it wasn't and told petraeus he ought to resign. >> i guess it's one of those cases once people know about it, the catch-22 is you have to do something about it or else you're part of the cover-up. maybe that's the way they look at it. pete williams, as always, thank you, sir
says much of the money bp has agreed to pay will be used to restore the environment in the gulf. we'll be right back with a tense exchange that just took place with some developing news actually in a hearing on the benghazi attacks. we'll play that for us right after this quick break. d also cs by making it without 100% real cheddar cheese. but then...it wouldn't be stouffer's mac & cheese. just one of over 70 satisfying recipes for one from stouffer's. a wit takes some doing.sn't just happen. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. create a musical light show with the maestro mouse voice- activated ornament. woman: what do you mean, homeowners insurance doesn't cover floods?

're in a changing environment, as you just noeted, when you're losing the cuban vote in florida, that's a brand-new day in american politics for the gop. >> they should have been listening to you. michael steele and steve elmendorf, thank you very much. >>> and this veterans day marnt the fuirst time in a decade in which there are no soldiers fighting in iraq. >> this 9/11 generation that stepped forward after the towers fell and in the years sense have stepped into history. running one of the greatest chapters of military service our country has ever known. tour after tour, year after year, you and your families have done all that this country has asked. you've done that and more. >> joseph carnes goodwin is a member of that post-9/11 generation that served in iraq and afghanistan and joins me now from boston. joe, great to see you. tell me about what made you want to serve and you did two tours, i think? >> that's right. one in iraq and one in afghanistan. >> and one in afghanistan. you, obviously, we've known for you for a long time. your parents, doris kearns goodwin, and your father, of co
the environment, how we welcome strangers. you in evangelicals last week writing the president last week saying how we treat the immigrant undocumented people is for us a biblical issue. we're going to write them again this week, the president and say who are serving the poor at christmastime and thanksgiving we're involved in that. those of us who are doing that are going to say to our members of congress don't make decisions that make the poor poorer and make our work harder. so you might say we're doing turkey baskets for the poor than baskets of letters to our some of our turkeys who represent us in congress. >> the moral majority for so longing had sway with partisan sway. do you think that their influence has waned? is that over now. >> here's the big change. the religious right for a long time tried to control the meaning of the word evangelical and make it a partisan political word. it's not. it's a theological term. it's about following jesus christ. it's about taking the bible seriously. and the issues there are one or two issues doesn't do that. so we're talking about evangelical now

to day livelihood in plays like west virginia, louisiana. while their environment is being destroyed, if you think about louisiana as a state that is being literally destroyed by the industry that employs a good number of the people there. so every mechanism in that state is designed to protect an industry that's destroying the state. but people as real lives are tied to it. even democrats, someone like jay rockefeller who is considered a great prerogative when it comes to coal, he's are with the republicans. >> anyone who is going to be elected -- there are certain places where it's the geographic interests override the ideological ones. >> that's why is we need some actually leadership from the president, and others on the really central issues. i mean, look, climate change is the legacy issue of all legacy issues. you know, 100 years from now, the only thing that people are going to look back on 2012 and care about. the fiscal cliff or the -- it's like, you guys the arctic melts and you didn't do anything about it? why is that? >> keystone is one pipeline. the canadian company is
